Description

Henri Matisse is widely regarded as the greatest colorist of the 20th century and as a rival to Pablo Picasso in the importance of his innovations. He first achieved prominence as the leader of the French movement Fauvism—but his long career would take him in many different directions. Matisse sought to use color as the foundation for expressive, decorative, and often monumental paintings. He also made significant contributions to collage and sculpture. “What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity…” Did he achieve it? Take this class to find out!
